Apple foresees shipping delays for the iPhone 14 Pro

3 mins read

Shipping timeframes for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone Pro Max are now four to five weeks.

Apple has acknowledged that the COVID-19 restrictions in China have “temporarily hampered” the availability of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models and has advised customers to anticipate delays.

Last Tuesday, China placed restrictions in Zhengzhou, the capital of the Henan province in the center of the country. As the holiday shopping season approaches, which is often Apple’s strongest sales quarter, the move has been made.

With almost 200,000 workers, Apple supplier Foxconn runs an assembly line in Zhengzhou. It produces the majority of iPhone 14s.

Apple announced on Sunday that it now anticipates lower shipments of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone Pro Max than originally anticipated, as well as lengthier wait times. It did not specify how long the delay in shipments would last.

Apple stated in a statement on Sunday that “the facility is currently operating at severely reduced capacity.” “We are giving the health and safety of the people in our supply chain top priority, as we have done during the COVID-19 outbreak.”

“We continue to see strong demand for iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. However, we now expect lower iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipments than we previously anticipated and customers will experience longer wait times to receive their new products.”

According to Apple’s website, both versions will ship to the US in four to five weeks. That’s an improvement from Sunday, when MacRumors claimed Apple had given both models a three- to four-week turnaround time estimate. There is currently a stock count for the iPhone 14.

To resume normal production levels while safeguarding the health and safety of every employee, Apple said, “We are working closely with our supplier.”

Zhengzhou has a population of roughly 10 million, according to the BBC. It reported 167 locally transmitted diseases last week, up from 97 the week before, in the seven days leading up to the previous Saturday. Apple has not published a warning like this, according to The Financial Times, since February 2020.
